Aries Woman Aries Man
What happens when a woman and a man get together who share this most confident and assertive of zodiac signs? For the Aries woman and Aries man, compatibility is red hot. This is a supremely passionate match, with sex being tremendously important to both partners. When they’re not busy in the bedroom, they’ll be busy trying to kill each other – which is where their star sign compatibility begins to falter.
The Aries woman and Aries man are both ruled by Mars, which means that both have an undeniable urge to win. Throughout this relationship, both will try to gain the upper hand. And in Aries land, there’s no such thing as compromise or taking turns or playing nicely – when either partner feels subordinate to the other, they will be aggressive, letting fly with a temper that can be truly frightening to witness.
Aries is a warrior sign, so perhaps all the fighting is natural. It’s also natural though that if either partner is challenged by someone else, the Aries woman or Aries man will leap to his or her defence with all guns blazing. Nobody criticizes either partner without feeling the wrath of the other. Although they may tear each other to pieces in private, in public these two protect each other fiercely.
There is so much energy in this partnership that Aries woman-Aries man compatibility often takes the form of an alpha couple. They seem to succeed at everything they do, because they share such drive and determination. They also have a lot of fun doing it, and will enjoy adventurous sports together and spontaneous, impulsive trips and treats. To the outside world, this is a couple which has everything, and still manages to keep the sexual flame burning many years into their relationship.
The underlying selfishness of Aries can cause problems for these warrior partners, however. Because both the Aries woman and Aries man tend to put themselves first, it takes a lot of practice for them to learn that sometimes, their partner’s needs must come first. It usually takes a mini crisis of some kind, with one partner going through a very tough time with work or health, before the other wakes up and realizes that some sympathy and compassion is required. The Aries woman and Aries man are both brave and courageous, but tenderness is an acquired skill for both.
The other major problem in the relationship can be jealousy. Although both the Aries woman and the Aries man feel that they should be free to do as they please, both have trouble extending that logic to their partner’s sexual freedom. Flirting or infidelity from either of them will unleash a torrent of anger from the other, even if they’ve behaved similarly in the past themselves. Yet again, the thorny issues of tolerance and compromise raises its head to blight what would otherwise be a truly fiery meeting of souls.
Aries Woman and Aries Man Compatibility
The couple in Kiss Me Kate (based on Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew) can generally be considered an Aries-Aries pair. They continually upstage one another, fight like cat and dog and yet are madly in love. These are two fire signs who love the challenge of conquering one another, at which they take turns. The fun of making up later is a bonus. To the outsider it may look like rough riding, what with all that pushing and shoving going on. But these two love to tangle and then ride off in different directions to exercise their independence.
How to Attract an Aries Man as an Aries Woman
If you want to attract an Aries man, you’ve simply got to be a challenge. Just act like he’s not the only man on earth, and it helps if you can show some degree of helplessness (it’s okay to pretend) so that he can come to your rescue. It’s worth the charade. What you are going for with this man is his respect, so don’t ever show weakness. He will not respect you if you back down or have blurry boundaries. If he pushes you psychically push back harder. If he ignores you, do something to get his attention. If he stops calling you, get on with your life and let word get out that you are moving forward. If he confronts you, stand your ground. Speak up for yourself and respond tit for tat. Don’t confuse flirting with other men as a way to attract or keep your Aries man. That’s a sure way to end the relationship.
How to Attract an Aries Woman as an Aries Man
If you want her to notice you, be firm but polite about some disagreement with her. That will earn her respect which is half the battle. As the relationship progresses, she’ll appreciate your macho side, but in the beginning do your best to shield her from your cowboy lifestyle. Try not to shoot your way in and out of Dodge on the first few dates. She has that problem herself; what will get her attention is someone who knows how to be diplomatic and get along. Let her see you have friends and contacts, people with whom you have longstanding, harmonious relationships (I know it’s a stretch, but dig someone up). She’ll find this sort of thing irresistible since she can’t get along with anyone for too long. Once you’ve got her hooked, your independence and drive will keep her on the line.
Degree of Romance
This combination probably has the highest degree of romance possible, with Leo to Leo second. This relationship is all about knights in shining armor, chivalry, dashing heroes, and moments of grand passion. You never have to worry about the romance dying. This is one man who will not be intimidated by a lady ram’s competence and independent spirit. The only trick to keeping the romance alive is that somehow the Aries woman has to seem like a damsel in distress once in a while (as unappealing as that is to her).
Degree of Passion
These are two fire signs: impetuous, impulsive doers who act on their feelings and impulses with little regard for the consequences. If it’s passion you are looking for and you can really stand the heat, go for it!
Degree of Friendship
Two Aries are comrades in arms. This is a couple that will do a lot together. Activities such as mountain climbing, skeet shooting, white water river rafting, and remodeling houses are the kind of things that appeal to them both. It helps if both are fit, athletic, and adventuresome in nature.
Degree of Marriage
The emphasis in this relationship is on personal growth, adventure, conquering new territory, fighting and making up, and challenging one another to new heights of passion and accomplishment. This might be hard to sustain in a day-to-day marriage where a routine is required to raise children, balance a checkbook, and maintain a house and car. For domesticity, you would be better off with another combination. This pair also gets into trouble if one or the other partner becomes dependent for some reason, say because of illness or loss of job, and those things are likely to happen in a long marriage.
Progression of Relationship
This relationship will take off like a sky rocket or not at all. It somehow feeds itself with fanned flames of passion and adventure or it dies a wretched death of disinterest or disrespect. The key is to keep it moving.
